For many, the holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year. For young people experiencing hardship and homelessness, however, it can be challenging. You can help make this year a little more wonderful for these folks by supporting Choices for Youth (CFY) is asking you to give the gift of home for the holidays by donating to our Holiday Campaign. The past year has been a difficult one for young people as they confront rising costs, food insecurity, inadequate housing, and a lack of mental and physical health services and supports.
Your monetary or in-kind contribution will make a difference in the lives of the 1000+ vulnerable youth that CFY helps each year, providing them with nutritious meals, affordable housing, and supports for their physical and mental health. We recognize that experiencing homelessness puts young people at a higher risk of mental health issues and we believe that every young person has the right to housing and the ability to choose the type of housing they access. Our Housing First for Youth approach removes barriers and focuses on providing safe housing so that we can support them in achieving their goals.
The generosity of individuals and businesses in our community has been crucial, especially during these challenging years of recovery following a global pandemic and allows CFY to continue securing the necessities that young people need while providing programs and services that give them the tools to achieve independence and live happy, healthy lives.
